Modified patrol responses to lower priority calls may be initiated. This means deputies may handle the call with the reporting party over the phone in lieu of face to face contact. As a result it is imperative that reporting parties provide the dispatcher with a good call back number. In addition, many cell phones block restricted calls or unknown calls. You will need to lift that restriction for deputies to contact you.
If you have any questions regarding the Corona virus do not call our dispatch. Contact the department of public health. They are more suited to answer any medical questions that you may have.
Thank you for your understanding, this situation will be re-evaluated continually and may be changes as updates are received.
